Forum: faqs Subject: Cant edit profile now, and need other help

Hello. i cant seem to edit my page now...
http://www.archive.org/details/voyageraudiolog1
i get something about a node??? even my download counter seems to be frozen.

also, when i can edit, i need to change one of the tracks. i need to get rid of track 8 and replace it like for like, so the new mp3 uploaded goes exactly in its place.It needs to be track 8. I read the faq guide on how to do this, but its beyond me. i dont even understand checking in and out. i need a step by step idiots guide. Originally i used a program to put the album up, as it was more than ten files. Please help, and try and be as clear and basic as possible, i dont understand jargon etc.

Maybe i could upload the new file here and someone could do the swop for me?? (i just noticed you can add files)
Thanking you in advance, and sorry for being so dumb... you will make my day!

Hi,

You can't access your item because you have it checked out (so at least the first part of the checking out process worked for you!).

If you're using Internet Explorer (IE) on a PC, this shouldn't be too hard.

1. Click this link: http://www.archive.org/checkout/voyageraudiolog1

2. You'll get a "checkout" page that tells you what server to connect to to access your item's files. Click the FTP URL that is displayed on the page.

3. If you're using IE 6, you should be ready to go. You'll see your files listed in this window. Delete the file(s) you want to get rid of, and drag the new file(s) into the window to upload them. (If you're deleting tack_8, please delete your original file plus any smaller files that we created like track_8_64kbps.mp3.) When you're done, click the "Click here when done" icon in the window.

If you're using IE 7, you'll see a screen that lists files as links. You cannot drag and drop onto this screen. So, after you click the FTP link on our site, hit "page" > "open FTP in window," wait for the error message, click "ok" and then select "file" > "login as". Enter your archive email and password and the folder with the familiar icons appears. You can now drag and drop your files as usual. Click the "Click here when done" icon in the window when you're done.

4. Your new files should show up on your page in about 20 minutes. When they do, if you want smaller "derived" files to show up, you'll need to do this:
Edit item > Item Manager > derive button

Thanks,

Alexis
